Weaving with Stripes at MPavilion
As part of its MMeets series, MPavilion is teaming up with the Australian Tapestry Workshop (ATW) to host a weaving workshop led by Japanese textile artist and lecturer Misako Nakahira.
No previous weaving experience? No worries. Nakahir will guide participants through the basics of weaving in this hands-on morning session. Using a range of everyday materials including paper, wool offcuts and recycled fabrics, you’ll learn different weaving techniques to help you create your own vibrant striped designs.
Nakahir – who’s name ironically means “a weaver of beautiful silk fabrics” in Kanji – explores a wide range of mediums through her work such as paper weaving, tapestry, ikat, felting, macrame and yarn spinning. After studying in Kyoto and exploring her craft, she’s now received a residency with the ATW.
Entry is free and all materials are included.
Due to limited capacity, registration is essential to secure a spot.
